This weekend I listened a while to the EU mess around K5D.
Specially on 40m there was a lot of confusion because K5D listened down 
on CW, resulting in a lot of frustations to innocent PACC participants 
who got a large pileup landing on them.

Still remember last years operation of VP6DX which made the small SSB 
part of 160 useless during the cq160.

I really hope K5D will stay away from cw during the ARRL DX coming 
weekend, having a large split frequency operation will cause a lot of 
troubles during a major contest like the arrl dx. It will also make 
large portions of the band unusable, which is a problem on 160 and 40.
